I'm looking to launch a live video streaming app soon.


I have enough content and i would like to create a app like twitch. Awaiting for your valuable suggestions.


Thanks

I have worked with startups in the past, building apps on top of live streaming software. This depends largely on factors like frequency of broadcasts and no of concurrent live streams and the software that can provide you better support on those metrics.


I am aware that Tokbox, Twilio - they have got good SDK systems and cost-effective as well.


If you would like to know further or talk in detail, let me know!


Thank you

I'm sorry, there aren't likely to be many experts on live streaming video using this kind of platform. I recommend shifting your question to forums where enthusiasts and professionals talk about nothing else but streaming video. I'm sure there are several.

Hello Everyone,


Though so many streaming software are available in the market,

it pretty much comes as a challenge to choose the best one.

A couple of software developing companies like Vplayed and Contus Vplay focus on providing live streaming solution for users.


Also,Streaming a video feed through the internet is the simplest technique of all and needs no expertise.

Hi Allwyn,

My project uses live video streaming as one of many features in our smart home tech platform. There is some overlap our platform delivers in what you are doing. Some popular, but steep learning curve, open source frameworks are:

VLC

GStreamer

OpenMax

Live555


Let me know if you'd like to pursue possible collaboration. I'm open to discussing it further.


Take care,

- Doug
